Pigs in a blanket are small sausages wrapped in pastry dough. They can be made with pre-made croissant dough, biscuit dough, or even crescent rolls. You can make them by hand or they can also be found in the frozen appetizer or snack section of your local grocery store. Popular brands include Jimmy Dean, Hillshire Farms, and Pillsbury.

The best way to cook frozen pigs in a blanket is by using your air fryer. Air fryers cook food by circulating hot air around the food. This results in evenly cooked food that is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.

It also takes much less time than using the oven, so if you are short on time, air frying is the way to go!

🐖How To Make Frozen Pigs In A Blanket In The Air Fryer

1️⃣Preheat the air fryer: Turn your air fryer to 375F and preheat for 3-5 minutes.

2️⃣Add to air fryer basket: Add the frozen pigs in a blanket to the bottom of the air fryer basket in a single even layer with 1/2 inch of room in between.

3️⃣Air fry pigs in a blanket: Set the timer for 10 minutes and cook until the pastry is golden brown on the outside and the hot dog is warmed through. This may take more or less time depending on the size of the appetizer.

4️⃣Remove and serve: Using tongs, remove the pigs in a blanket and serve while hot with your favorite dipping sauces. Enjoy!

👩🏻‍🍳Air Fryer Cooking Tips

  • The best time and temperature to cook frozen pigs in a blanket depends on the size of the appetizer. Start with 10 minutes at 375F and add more or less time depending on how well they are cooked.
  • The puff pastry will expand once cooked in the air fryer, so be sure to leave 1/2 inch space in between each piece.
  • If you want extra crispy pigs in a blanket, brush them with a beaten egg before air frying.
  • Pigs in a blanket are best served immediately. If you have any leftovers, you can reheat them in the air fryer for a few minutes or in the oven at 350F until warmed through.
  • Serve with dipping sauce: ketchup, mustard, honey mustard, ranch dressing, or BBQ sauce.
